Mobango reaches five million members

Users downloaded 550 million pieces of content so far

London, 21 October 2009: Mobango, the first social mobile application store, today announced that its highly engaged global community has reached over five million members - who have downloaded more than 550 million pieces of mobile content so far.

The Mobango community is primarily made up of the important and hard to reach, `young' (18-25) and `young adult' (26-34) demographic. Around the world very strong local communities of these age ranges have been built up -the largest currently being in the US, India, UK and Italy, but with Germany and Spain coming up fast. Mobango's unique strength lies in not only being a mobile site to just download apps, but also being somewhere that members can share apps and personal content with their friends - and interact via their phones.

Fabio Pezzotti, CEO of Mobango, said: "Reaching over five million members in the Mobango global community is a fantastic achievement for us - and a real endorsement for what we're doing. The growth we're seeing reinforces our ideas about how a social mobile apps store works best. "
